Citizens Unite to provide a Ray of Hope for the Future
Sponsored by Peppo’s Urban Café
Rainbow RGV Community Partners of McAllen, TX
(MCALLEN, TEXAS – July 27, 2012) Friday, August 17, 2012, the owners of Peppo’s Urban Café, located at 3503 N. Ware Rd., McAllen, TX and the sponsors of the McAllen CPS Rainbow Room, Rainbow RGV Community Partners, will be sponsoring a special event at Peppo’s Urban Café to help create awareness to the McAllen Rainbow Room and bring awareness to the shocking number of victims of child abuse and neglect in Hidalgo County. Rainbow RGV Community Partners is a 501c3 non-profit organization operated by volunteers whose mission is to form a partnership between Child Protective Services and the community. Rainbow RGV Community Partners believes that through these joint efforts a caseworker is better able to protect and assist families and children in crisis. Unfortunately there are often times when the abuse or neglect is so extreme that children must be removed from the home without anything but the shirts on their backs, literally. CPS workers involved in these emergencies need the resources to help children begin transitioning to a better tomorrow. The Rainbow Room is their first step.
You can be a “ray of hope” to these children. For more information or to become involved in this event please contact Emma Menchaca, CPS Regional Rainbow Room Coordinator at 956-270-2284 or 956-682-1301.
